where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Sometimes I feel like #diabetes is such a huge part of my life that I have to actively try to NOT think about it. Does anyone feel the same?

Having those thoughts comes with diabetes if we allow them. After living with Type 1 for 24 years it has become a vital addition to my health. Unfortunately, I do have to think about it daily but do my best to control it & not let it control me or my life.

I guess it's all in the way you look at it. Yes I have to think/do something related to diabetes from time I get up till I go to bed.
